Music composed by Jan Zwart (1877-1937). This is possibly one of his more well known compositions on the beautiful Genevan melody for Psalm 84.
English versification of vs 1:
O LORD of hosts, almighty King,
the praises of your house I sing.
How lovely is your habitation!
Your holy courts I yearn to see;
faint with desire, I long to be
where pilgrims join in celebration.
My heart and flesh with joyful shout
to you, the living God, cry out.
